books... to receive

Monday, November 23, 2009

I'm sure by now, you have seen and heard about these two terrific books. They are both filled with fabulous projects and information for knitters of all levels. I would be showing you more photos of the contents of each book, however, my camera (MY CAMERA) just went kerplunk and I will be without (WITHOUT) for 4-5 weeks (WEEKS) while Ritz Camera ships it away to the nikon camera fairies where they will try to repair it. You have no idea how much this bums me out. The poor girl behind the counter didn't know what to do when I started to cry. (YES, CRY!) Oh! And to top it off, I left a pair of fingerless gloves (that were my husbands!) on the counter and when I went back to get them they were gone. (LONG GONE!)
Book #1: Nicky Epstein Knitting a Kiss in Every Stitch. Truly one of my favorite books of hers. I love the layout of this book. A chapter each for kids, girls, guys and special friends. An entire book filled with projects to give. (Who says you can't give to yourself?)
The "guys" chapter consists of five projects including these fisherman's gloves. (love)

How cute are these for the jet setter in your life? (free pattern)
The reversible baby hoodie is absolutely adorable. (totally)
Book #2: Color by Kristin. Not only is this book filled with unbelievable color projects, but there is also information on how to design your own beautiful (colorful) knits.
Kristin talks about how color inspires her and shares so much of the information she has acquired along her knitting journey.
Honestly, both books would make a great gift for one of your knitting friends... or yourself.
And guess what? If you want a copy of either of these books, leave me a comment by midnight Wednesday, November 25th. I will draw two names on Thanksgiving day. Please let me know if you have a preference.

  3. Yikes Leslie, no camera!! Wishing it a speedy return to your waiting hands and very glad you have so much lovely reading material to keep you busy. Hmmm, sickening about the gloves, try to imagine them keeping a very needy person warm (rather than a horrid thief).

    Both books look fantastic, what a lovely giveaway.

  12. My condolences on your camera. It's amazing how we come to rely on our electronics! I know it will be a long 5 weeks for me - your photos are always so lovely. Both books sound wonderful. Either one would be welcome in my knitting library - but I am especially coveting Color by Kristin.

  24. Oh that breaks my heart to hear about your camera, I would have cried too. And the holidays, no less. I had to send my first Canon back to the factory to be cleaned (years ago.) It was never the same. And then to lose gloves on top of it - sad. :( I hope your camera comes back in great condition!
